English Across The Curriculum

English Across the Curriculum is a free website that gives language learners the opportunity to improve their English skills in many subjects. Students can work through a variety of topics in English, improve their vocabulary and enhance their knowledge through a series of tasks and exercises.

The courses are intermediate to upper-intermediate. Difficult words are explained via pop-ups in the text.

Each modules consists of three parts. Learners are advised to work through the unit in the order below.

  • Contents - The main part consists of webpages of information. Difficult words are explained in pop-ups which are designed to give the student a better learning experience and allow them to understand difficult texts better without having to look up words.
  • Videos - Each module consists of specially chosen videos that provide additional visual information.
  • Exercises and Tasks - After going through the information section students should work through the online exercises and tasks , which offer an immediate feedback.

If you find any errors (and I'm sure you will ) please let me know. I would also appreciate comments and feedback. If you are a teacher, let me know how your students are doing and how well they found away around the modules.
